Alright, so I downloaded an entire site via ftp (at least I thought I got the entire thing) with the intention of running it offline so I could touch up the visuals and tweak the layout a little bit without much hassle. The problem I'm having is opening up the site in with my browser offline. I haven't done anything yet so I know that's not the problem! The site is written in PHP and CSS and uses MYSQL. I assumed it wasn't necessary to set up an offline MYSQL database to run the site offline to do what I needed to do but I could be wrong.
I guess I would consider myself to have a basic understanding of HTML and CSS so I wouldn't be surprised if I am missing something very obvious here. When I open the index file (index.php) my browser is completely blank.
Any ideas on what I am doing wrong would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
